South Lakes swimmers meet McLean at 7 p.m. Friday at Spring Hill.

Girls basketball — The Seahawks are 13-1 and ranked No. 6 by The Washington Post in this week’s poll. Tuesday’s game against  McLean was postponed due to the snow day. The girls host Washington-Lee Friday at 7:30 p.m.

The team has won five games in a row, including a 66-44 victory over Langley last Friday in which four players scored in double figures. The girls followed that win with a 67-6 1 victory over Franklin County Saturday. That game was part of the 2014 STAT VA Classic in Richmond, a tournament for the top finishers in Virginia last season.
